Capella Enters American Luxury Market with New Georgetown Accommodations

Washington, D.C.—Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The Presidential inauguration will not be the only cause for excitement in Washington, D.C. at the turn of 2013 as Capella Hotels and Resorts will celebrate the opening of its chic, sophisticated, 49-room Capella Washington, D.C. in Georgetown, the first Capella-branded hotel in the United States.

Capella’s hospitality vision is based on the concept of superbly designed (in this case by Peter Silling and Associates, who also designed the Breidenbacher Hof, a Capella Hotel in Dusseldorf, Germany) and intimately-sized hotels offering both privacy and unmatched amenities and services. The Capella experience is all about satisfying individual tastes and expectations to the maximum degree possible, with personalized attention that would be impossible in a larger hotel.

The new hotel’s prime location, bordering the historic C&O Canal in Georgetown, provides business and leisure guests with easy access to all of Washington, including the National Mall and Smithsonian museums, the U.S. Capitol and White House, The World Bank and other international organizations, federal government agencies and financial and business districts.

“Capella Washington, D.C., will give guests the opportunity to really get to know D.C. and we will provide exclusive access and programming so that they can go behind-the-scenes of some of the capital’s top attractions,” said the property’s General Manager Alex Obertop. “The design by Peter and his team is intended to evoke the feeling of being in the comfort of one’s home, complemented by a rich palette of the finest materials, furnishings and art collections.”

Besides the annals of American history, guests of the new property will have access to attentive Capella Personal Assistants around-the-clock, a complimentary refreshment center, complimentary laundry pressing service of up to five pieces and complimentary Wi-Fi.

In addition to 49 rooms and suites there will be a premium restaurant and lounge, an executive boardroom and a guests-only rooftop pool and bar. Special guest services include private after-hours shopping in the city’s most exclusive stores; guided tours to Washington’s newest and hottest attractions, including the Washington Ballet, with backstage access.

So whether a political player or world traveler, enjoy Washington, D.C. this inauguration season with Capella Washington, D.C. in Georgetown.
